  • newegg Incredible Beauty ASUS ZENBOOK achieves a unique combination of artistic craftsmanship and advanced technology. The ZENBOOK UX21 uses a precision-crafted design measuring only 3mm at the front and 9mm at the rear and weighs a feather-light 1.1kg. It presents a fetching hairline spun metal finish with concentric circles that embody the tranquility and infinite potential of this Ultrabook. Using durable but elegant aluminum offers a lighter Ultrabook that’s easier to carry, while retaining strength and durability. To accomplish a sleek and smooth metallic look, ASUS developed new mounting methods that reduce screw usage by 12%, taking inspiration from hand-crafted luxury wrist watches. Despite the compact form factor, ASUS ZENBOOK doesn’t skimp on tantalizing graphics, rendering everything from multimedia to productivity in amazing fidelity. High definition visuals look better on the world’s first 450cd/m2 panel on any Ultrabook, making dark areas clearer, while light areas stand out in vivid detail.
  • newegg Impressively Responsive One of the key advantages of the ASUS ZENBOOK is its smartphone-like spontaneity and always-on design. Regardless of how long the Ultrabook remains in standby, it can resume in just two seconds thanks to exclusive ASUS Super Hybrid Engine II technology. In effect, this means users have no reason to shut the ASUS ZENBOOK down, eliminating the need for lengthy boot ups. And with exclusive ASUS Super Hybrid Engine II technology, the ASUS ZENBOOK can stay in standby for up to two weeks. Instant on functionality automatically backs up data to the SSD should the battery level drop below 5%, removing the risk of data loss due to a drained battery. The ZENBOOK therefore adds worry-free usability to its list of advantages.
  • newegg Incredible Green Dedicated Battery Saving Mode boosts battery charge by as much as 25% for longer usability and range, free from the need to stay close to wall sockets or adapters. So that you’re always in the know when it comes to battery life, the exclusive ASUS PowerWiz utility provides accurate info on available charge by specific usage conditions, so you can plan better.
  • newegg Incredible Performance While compact and light, the ZENBOOK never misses a beat with amazing technology that offers the fastest, most efficient and most breathtaking experience in its class. The 2nd generation Intel Core i5 CPU comes equipped with energy-efficient power that pushes multitasking and multimedia forward to new levels of excitement. ASUS ZENBOOK models ship with SATA 6Gb/s solid state drives rather than older mechanical storage options, making the most of the latest hard drive interface standard with double the bandwidth of SATA 3Gb/s. USB 3.0 also comes standard, upping data speeds by as much as ten times compared to USB 2.0. On average, ASUS ZENBOOK offers seven times faster data connectivity next to competing models, boosting the user experience in every application.
  • newegg Incredible Cooling To accommodate so much powerful technology on a compact form factor, ASUS engineers have developed custom cooling and thermal designs that use a V-shaped air channel to increase air flow, as well as unique beryllium copper alloy components to better handle heat. There are even copper fins to direct heat away out of the case, so ASUS ZENBOOK always stays cool. While thinner and lighter than competing models, ASUS ZENBOOK is also more powerful, and runs at lower temps for increased longevity and reliability.
  • newegg Incredible Audio ASUS ZENBOOK outputs staggeringly rewarding and impactful sound that far exceeds its compact size. In fact, it’s the kind of sound you’d usually associate with standalone surround setups! Based on cooperation between the ASUS Golden Ear team and Bang & Olufsen ICEpower, ASUS ZENBOOK outputs incredible audio that’s the best among all Ultrabook in its class. Custom design includes an oval voice coil for clearer vocals, oversized shielded speaker magnets for more impact and better bass, plus aluminum rings to secure speakers and reduce vibration. This is further helped by ASUS ZENBOOK’s aluminum body, which conducts and insulates sound very well at the same time. Lifelike audio via Smart Dynamic Range Control (DRC) means sheer sound enjoyment in every situation.

1 out of 5 eggsDead in 7 months

Pros: small

Cons: Died after 7 months of usage, no drops, used just to browser internet and do homework. SSD is not being recognized, goes straight to bios. Always had problems with this laptop, for something so costly would have expected better quality.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Sorry to hear that the SSD is not being recognized. Have you tried going to the boot configuration and changing it IDE or AHCI. If you are still having problems have you tried doing a factory restore. Restart your computer and press F9. Just to warn you if you do this all your information will be wiped out and the laptop will return back to stock.

If you have any questions or comments you can email me at cl-jeffrey@asus.com

1 out of 5 eggsAsus can't repair

Pros: Light weight with long battery life

Cons: Poor keyboard. Poor HDMI connectivity. Sloppy touchpad.

Other Thoughts: Since receiving my computer on 2/29/2012, it has been away for repair for five attempts totaling an absence of more than seven weeks. Asus currently has the computer, but refuses to replace it with a new unit.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Sorry to hear that your unit has been in for repair for the same problem. Like I mention in the the email that I have tested your unit and the microHDMI connection feels sturdy.

The refurbish unit will come on Thursday and I will test the microHDMI connector on that as well before shipping out.

3 out of 5 eggsASUS Zenbook UX21E

Pros: LIGHT WEIGHT AND A GREAT MACHINE WHEN IT WORKS.

Cons: DC POWER CONECTOR TO CMPUTER IS A PIECE OF JUNK. ONBOARD MOUSE NOT MUCH BETTER.

Other Thoughts: A GOOD POWER PLUG WOULD GET 4 EGGS +. EXTERNAL MOUSE SOLVES THE MOUSE PROBLEM.

4 out of 5 eggsworth it

Pros: Lightweight portable and overall very good. the response time on a fresh install is normal, for the average user this machine is very nice to have.

Cons: There really is not much to say when it comes to issues with the machine, it is a very good machine and does quite well. The hybrid mode and battery time is still a little off but I am sure the company will fine tune that. The battery time is still good though and the instant on feature is very handy.

Other Thoughts: I reloaded with Ultimate 7 64 (clean load) and added in all the features from asus. after the clean load it was very responsive and did not disappoint me. this could easily be a primary machine with portable capability.

5 out of 5 eggsAsus Zenbook

Pros: Overall i was very impressed. My Girlfriend is the one who will be using it the most and it is perfect for the tasks that she intends to do. Mostly writing and light Photo editing. So far everything seems to be running smooth and fast. The SSD really makes all the difference in speed, It makes me wonder why i haven't migrated over to one yet in my Desktop. 4GB of RAM and the Intel i5 really shine here, as it's not intended to do more than a few things at a time. But for what my Girlfriend needs it for it is perfect. It comes with a few USB attachments that allow for an Ethernet Plug in as well as an external VGA monitor. I have read a few complaints about the Tackpad and i must say i haven't noticed any problems with it. The Multi-gesture capabilities work great. It is however a little touchy but my Girlfriend loves that it is.

Cons: the only gripe is the smallest nit-pick ever and that's the Webcam, 0.3M Pixel. But for us it isn't a big deal at all, as we do not intend on using it.

Other Thoughts: I think this is a perfect Ultrabook, it is a little Pricey but for those who don't mind spending a little more it's great. I would not recommend this for gaming or High-end 3D design or Video Editing. But for simpler tasks it is wonderful.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointing

Pros: Lightweight
Classy-looking
Sharp screen
Surprisingly high quality sound
Long battery life

Cons: Very underpowered - Processor is unable to run a single Livestream from a website without choking with no other programs active.

Wifi - Weak antenna means connections are tenuous at best. Will repeatedly drop connection or lose internet access with hotspots less than 10' away.

Other Thoughts: A very sharp-looking machine and very impressive, but I am very disappointed in its performance. I got the machine to stay in touch with IMs, emails, and streams while traveling and for its long battery life. At no point did I expect a powerhouse of a machine, nor did I want one for my school computer, but it is unable to perform with even these light tasks to satisfaction.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I apologize for the issues you are having with your Zenbook. We are always updating our machines to keep them running optimally; please check here http://support.asus.com/download/options.aspx?SLanguage=en to see if your drivers are up to date. Usually weak wireless reception can be fix as easy as that.

If that does not alleviate the issues and you would like further assistance, please contact me at cl-tien@asus.com. I will be happy to help you in any way that I can. Please refer to reference # 1032-161 in your reply so that I may serve you more quickly and efficiently.

2 out of 5 eggsLow Quality

Pros: Looks sleek, very light and is small.

Cons: The wireless adapter is horrible. It loses its connection constantly, moving to another room or table will drop the connection. The adapter also turns off randomly. Search for online for more details about it, atheros ar9485 is the adapter.

The mouse sensor pad does not recognize your touch at times and other times it does a double click.

There was several critical updates on first booted. Many of which was to address the poor wireless card, mouse pad and several other features, even with the updates problems persisted.

I expected ALOT higher of a quality product for the price and the low specs. I'm very disappointed, especially because it was a gift. I would not recommend this product.

4 out of 5 eggsUX21E-DH52

Pros: Light weight and fast for a laptop. Nice machine.

Cons: Keep in mind that you will need an external cd/dvd reader/burner. I use and like Lighton model TAU208 available from Newegg.
Only other problem is the so-called mouse. Worst I have ever seen. I recommend turning off the onboard mouse and using a good wireless mouse (Logetech). When you turn off the onboard mouse it will function normally after you disconnect the external mouse.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Product - Poor Service

Pros: Quality design and very low weight for a Windows based machine. Definitely a competitor to the Apple Macbook Air.

Cons: Poor support. Registered and entered a service ticket over a week ago and heard oohing back from them about a bad key on the keyboard. Promised response within 48 hours and still waiting after nearly a week.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for Air Travel

Pros: Very lightweight. Comes with carrying case that adds a layer of protection when traveling. Battery lasts all day. Attractive finish. A real computer that can do real work.

Cons: No disk reader/burner, but not a deal breaker. The USB ports are on opposite sides of the case. Most burners will require an extension cable to work properly.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to use when traveling by air. It fills this role perfectly. It fits in my briefcase with plenty of room to spare for the other stuff.
